I still have a few more spots left for Volunteer Tire Marshals at Barber if anyone is interested.

AMA Pro Racing will run the Tire Control Program at Barber Motorsports Park June 21 - 23, 2013 and we are seeking volunteers to help. We are looking to fill the volunteer positions with individuals that can work all three days but will consider one or two day workers only if we do not have enough three day workers..

Tire Control
Tire control is the monitoring of tire usage at AMA Pro Racing events. The competitor is the individual or entity who is entitled to enter a machine for competition. As a competitor goes through tech he/she will receive stickers for their tires. The tire stickers are color coded for each class. Each competitor will receive a designated amount of stickers dependent upon which classes the competitor is signed up for.

Tire Marshal
The Tire Marshal’s job is to check all bikes for stickers prior to the bikes going on track. The Tire Marshal will stop each bike to log the sticker numbers and color of stickers. Tire Marshal’s will also log stickers each time an entrant changes tires during their allotted practice.

This is a simple job but it is very important to ensure stickers are on all tires prior to track entry. All competitors know the tags are being checked but appreciate it when this is completed quickly in order for them to get on the track. Tire Marshals will be working rain or shine so please come prepared. Tire Marshals should expect to work June 21 - 23, 2013 from 9:30 am to 6:00 pm on Friday, from 7:00 am to 11:00 am and 4:00 - 5:00 on Saturday and from 7:30 am to 10:30 am Sunday.

In exchange for your services, you will be given a credential good for all three days, a parking pass to the P1 lot for your vehicle, lunch on Friday and a shirt for the event. You will be allowed one more credential for you to assign to a guest. The guest credentials are for paddock entry only and do not include hot pit access, parking pass or shirt.

If you sign up for the event, please be there or give adequate notice that something has come up.

To sign up, please send an email to sheilapaul@live.com with your full name (as it appears on your drivers license), days you are available to work, shirt size and cell phone number.
